Lester del Rey was a prolific American science-fiction author and editor. In Badge of Infamy, Earth is controlled by huge and powerful lobbies. One of the biggest and most powerful is the Medical Lobby. Dr. Daniel Feldman dared to violate one of their rules in order to save a friend's life. As a result, he has become a pariah, shunned by all and forbidden to touch another patient on penalty of death. Doc Feldman escapes to Mars, where the Lobby is not quite as powerful.

He is welcomed by the colonists, but, since he continues to break rules in order to save lives, he's hunted by the authorities. Then he discovers a Martian plague that could wipe out humanity on both planets, Feldman finds himself a pivotal figure when war breaks out between the two worlds. Earth threatens to wipe out the Mars colony completely unless a cure to the plague is found - and only Feldman has even a chance of finding it.

    " Quite an interesting concept of a 'Lobby' controlling everything about society like that. I think Lester handled the story very well, and the conflicts stood out so you could almost picture them. "

    " Classic fifties science fiction written before we sent little land rovers to mars and believed we could actually colonize the place. Some social commentary about the medical profession that was interesting but mostly loved the independent spirit of the settlers. "

    " An unfairly disbarred doctor plies his trade on the Martian frontier and gets involved in a revolution. An epic story in a short book - just my cup of tea. "

    " Ugh. Randian nonsense strikes again; what is it about white American males that makes them mistake their privilege for exceptionalism? "
